HR Technology Firm Symatrix Eyes Global Expansion Following Influx of Client Wins
New office opening in Delhi, India represents next phase of dynamic growth plan
MANCHESTER, UK - 24 January 2022: Symatrix, a Manchester-based Oracle HCM and ERP partner, is expanding its headcount by 27% following an increase in demand for the company’s services amid a series of new client wins. In the first half of the fiscal year, Symatrix reported growth of 22% on top of strong growth already achieved in 2020.
Buoyed by the success of its aggressive growth strategy, the company has opened a new wholly owned division, Symatrix Global IT Services, supported by an office in Delhi India. The new office is be headed up by Alok Darshan, who has over 20 years’ experience of Oracle HCM and ERP consulting and will be focused on delivery support and testing functions.
Symatrix Managing Director, Chris Brooks, commented: “Over the past 18 months, we have successfully delivered numerous projects, 100% remotely, often working with people from across the globe. Expanding our footprint still further and opening our new Indian operation is a natural evolution of this process and gives us the opportunity to augment the UK team with experienced Indian consultants with high levels of Oracle skills.”
The expansion into India comes on the back of ongoing success in Symatrix’ home market of the UK. The company, which works with a number of well-known brands, such as The Co-op Group, Marriott Hotels and Durham University, has recently secured a series of new customer contracts across retail, higher education, and the public sector. The company has welcomed two new Oracle HCM Cloud retailers, a new Oracle ERP Cloud support customer, and secured a large new outsource payroll service for a central government organisation.
To support the company’s growth, Symatrix currently has 20 permanent role vacancies open in the UK, from ERP, HCM and payroll to IT and new business sales. The organisation has also successfully launched a graduate programme, with three appointments to the scheme. The structured training programme, which lasts up to a year, covers several specialisms including the technical and functional aspects of Oracle applications. Symatrix is also looking for people to join its well-established apprenticeship programme, which is currently being completed by five apprentices. Supporting the growing trend for remote working, the company is encouraging candidates from all UK geographical locations to apply.
This is the latest development in Symatrix’ growth strategy, which includes the recent appointment of Charles Courquin to the board. As Sales Director, Charles is overseeing Symatrix’ HCM and ERP sales strategies whilst building strong relationships with existing and new clients.
Charles said: “It is an exciting time to be at Symatrix, we are continuing to expand our service offering and as a business we’re going from strength to strength, with our latest recruitment drive testament to this. After what has been a challenging year for all economies, we are proud to be creating new opportunities and particularly look forward to supporting younger generations in building their careers through our apprenticeship programmes and the newly-created graduate scheme.
